In Marvel Avengers, there are gameplay boosters for money
In Marvel Avengers, there are gameplay boosters for money. Previously, developers have repeatedly said that they will sell only appearance items, but it looks like they didn't stop there.
Marvel Avengers is already doing badly, and now a handful of earth has been thrown into her grave by the developers themselves. Previously, they have repeatedly stated that for extra money it will be possible to buy only appearance items, but now gameplay boosters have appeared in the game store.
As eyewitnesses say, boosters in Marvel Avengers allow you to speed up pumping for a limited time or get more resources, that is, they directly affect the gameplay. Accelerators can be purchased only for a currency that is sold for real money.
On Reddit, they immediately began to recall many cases when developers claimed that the donation would be only cosmetic:
- "Our promise to the community is that we won't have loot boxes or paytuvin" — a quote from E3 2019, when Marvel Avengers was announced.
- "Your Black Widow may differ from my Black Widow - maybe a little bit, or maybe very much, depending on what you like best and how you pump. As for monetization, we will have an "appearance". No money barriers in gameplay" - interview with Scot Amos, head of Crystal Dynamics studio.
- "We are determined that the content purchased for real money in Marvel's Avengers will be exclusively visual, which will ensure the life of the game for many years to come" - material from the official website shortly before the release of the game.
Marvel Avengers subreddit drowned in messages from disappointed fans. They began to recall Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics other sins related to the game: for example, in March they slowed down the pumping of characters, and the promised Spider-Man, which was going to be released on PlayStation at the beginning of 2021, still has no release date.
Some suggest that the appearance of paid boosters for pumping was timed to coincide with the launch of Marvel Avengers in the Xbox Game Pass, they say, since a large influx of newcomers is expected, then they can be milked. The game really got into the top 5 most popular games on Xbox, but it is unknown how successful the adventure with boosters will be.
